You can also try resetting the Windows Update components which is outlined in this article: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/971058



i uninstall the latest 2 updates - then retry

"Windows update failed"
We may need more information. What failed, how and when?
But you have two problems. One is when WinUpdate failed and another when you ran the Windows Update Diagnostic tool.
The latter is often caused by corrupt operating system (Windows) files.
If you know when the problem started, try a System Restore.
If no help or you cannot remember the last time you ran the Diagnostic Tool or a Windows Update successfully, run SFC /SCANNOW from an administrative Command Prompt.

And if still no help run a Repair Install.

This should not affect your personal data or installed programs but a backup first is always a good idea.



Thanks you all!

Sorry I have been overwhelmed with work. I have not had a chance to review the solutions. I have tried Resetting the components, the Windows Update Diagnostic tool, system restore and the SFC/Scannow, without any success. I also ran ccleaner, spybot, malabytes and Windows defender scans.

I will work on this over the weekend, and let you know the results
